Gravitational Potential Energy
Ep = m x g x h
1. Find the gravitational potential energy of a light that has a mass of 13.0 kg and is 4.8 m above the ground.
2. An apple in a tree has a potential energy of 175 J and a mass of 0.36 kg.
How high from the ground is the apple?
3. A marble is on a table 2.4 m above the ground.
What is the mass of the marble if it has a potential energy of 568 J.
4. A box with a mass of 12.5 kg sits on the floor. How high would you need to lift it for it to have a Ep of 355J ?
